Chorley beat a Manchester City Under-21s side 5-3 at Victory Park on Tuesday night as they completed their pre-season programme in style.

Louis Britton got the Magpies off to the perfect start, scoring in the opening minute, and it was 2-0 when Jack Hazlehurst found the net for the home side.

Tai Sodje reduced the arrears for City's youngsters, but Cian Spencer-McDermott and a Tomas Galvez own goal made it 4-1 at half-time to Chorley.

Isaiah Dada-Mascoll scored a consolation goal for the visitors 15 minutes from time.

It was the perfect way to sign off pre-season in preparation for Saturday’s big kick-off in the National League North, when Brackley Town will be the visitors to Victory Park.

Chorley boss Andy Preece said: “It was a fantastic warm-up for us. The lads were fantastic...some great performances.”
